It seems it tries to mount the small ufs root on /mnt using
'NAME=boot' label, but the label created by the standard installed is
I missed an instruction step to ensure the label of the FFS partiton is boot.
gpt label -i 1 -l boot wd0
Replace 1 with the partition index and wd0 with the device.
We do it like so to avoid the user needing to load the solaris and zfs modules
Ideally we should teach sysctl to have kern.boot_device alongside
kern.root_device to avoid this need.
